Hi All

 

Can someone knock me up a layout for an Epoch machine, just for test purposes? I need it to have 256 lamps, say 8 LEDs, a regular VFD (alpha display..) and that should do it.

 

I can send over a test program that switches all lamps on or in sequence and displays 12345678 on the LEDs.

 

Would be a massive help ;)

 

Cheers

Ed

First of all extract the zip below then load up MFME, enter edit mode (CTRL & E or use the menu at the top for Design > Edit Mode) then right click Window Size > Max Monitor Res then finally go to roughly the top left corner of the layout (Under the red bar), right click > Load from file & select "EPOCH BLANK LAYOUT.GRP"

Yep, I have got some old games compiling, so I can write code for it just as when I was developing proper machines on Epoch....

I could if Hungarian games were your thing! :)

I might have a stab at writing a new game from scratch.....
